Detroit 442 was formed in march 2006. Recorded a CD, toured Europe twice and broke up after the guitarist ran off with the band money to pay for his drug and strippers addiction. Got back together in 2009 with Scott and Scott from the Beer Whores and Bean from the second line up and broke up again after recording the "another night in Detroit " 7". The singer then moved to Billig Blasen, Germany," because it was a real friendly place", but like most place after a while it began to suck and it was time to get back to Detroit for more damage. The band reformed again a few days ago with former Hillside Stranglers member ,Guantanamo Jay on bass and Phil from the Ratfinks on drums, so catch them while you can.
